Recipes: Shrimp Alfredo

This is super easy and nom.

What you need:
Shrimp. I used fully cooked, frozen, medium. You just need to run cold water over them and picked off their little tails. Scott likes to buy steamed seasoned shrimp. I like $7.99 over $20. Sue me.
Butter. Enter the debate over using "real " butter v/s Country Crock. I maintain that Country Crock is butter. Whatever. Use a pat or so of ugly stick butter.
A shake or two of parsley and basil.
2 jars of Classic Ragu Alfredo Sauce. I don't even care what your favorite kind is. This is what you want.
Thin pasta. Angel Hair would be ideal. I had thin spaghetti on hand way in the back of the fridge. It works.
A big heaping spoon of minced garlic.

What you need to do:
Boil the pasta.
Melt the butter in a skillet, add shrimp and minced garlic to medium heat, stir until garlic cooks down, 5-7 minutes.
Add one jar of Alfredo to the shrimp, add the seasonings, turn to low until the pasta is ready.
Drain the pasta, add the second jar of Alfredo.
Huge debate whether to mix it all together in the shrimp skillet, or the pasta pot.
The pot won.

Throw a little Parmesan on there. Shaved is my favorite. I had shredded.
My world, my world.


Just one of my favorite pictures ever. Move along.
